I am extremely happy to see this group getting off the ground. We talk a lot about how to raise our profile with different groups and geographies. In my mind, this is the absolute best way to do it. The nuances of each geography are complex and require individuals in that geographic area to navigate them.
I am extremely excited to see more geographic and group-specific sub-communities start to develop and thrive within Index Coop.
Our Women in Index Coop Community call and Discord chat have absolutely blown up over the past few weeks. We have incredibly strong female contributors and it is important that we continue to develop female-centric spaces that offer continued support.
We have many strong contributors from Africa. I would love to see an Index Coop Africa group form and spearhead our efforts to raise awareness on that continent.
We also have many strong South American and Indian contributors. Similar efforts would go a long way here.
It seems clear that much of the explosive growth that occurs within the global financial revolution will be driven by non-western perspectives and nations. If Index Coop is to become a truly global financial powerhouse we need to embrace region speci fic sub-groups to drive growth in each region
Also as part of an ongoing effort, here’s a groundwork sheet for the APAC region.
Tapping into China’s pool of resources would be one of the focus as per highlighted by @Tudou
Indonesia market are friendly to crypto business and as one of the populous nation in SEA, it serve as potential for Institutional BD to come in.
eSport/eGames is huge in APAC region, would be such a shame if we don’t tap this market especially when one of IndexCoop product is MVI. This could also be one of the niche narrative for APAC as well. But need more deliberation & discussion on this.
Any further updates on APAC can be found at # APAC
We do hope as the week goes by, we keep on seeing more and more APAC Coop members joining. Also if there’s any feedback do reach out.
Guess the grinding part is the hardest. But as the saying goes…
Wow thanks for sharing this, yes definitely something we can learn and leverage on. Perhaps you have some networks you can leverage on to get the a better understanding these personas? I also could ask my networks there as well.
Cool!! Do you have any timeline on this? As I saw that the IIP was passed right? or did i got it wrong? Anyways I think we have a huge potential in the APAC region, given what you’ve stated Axie presence also in Indo & Malaysia & Vietnam. Something that warrant a further discussion.
Was just thinking the same thing during the call, when @Tudou shared about this idea. I think it would be great to get more context on MVI roadmaps and how APAC can contribute to the growth of it. Our next call is schedule next week same time as today. Hopefully you or @DarkForestCapital or both can make it, though not friendly for the American timezones.
Looking forward to initiate this discussion further.
Hey I see @cavalier_Eth mentioned a new joiner call in APAC time zones?
I am scheduled to join the NZ 2200 on the 29th (this week 0300 is a no go)
Is the 29th the APAC time zone meet?
Just wondering If I’ve missed something as the only times I have in calendar or 0300 or 2200.
I can make 2200 work
Hi @lee0007 - we have been discussing on the APAC calls the possibility of having a new joiner call at an APAC friendly time - we need this to enable people to join the group, but at the moment as you correctly mention the new joiner call is not not APAC timezone friendly (chicken & egg!) so it is a top priority for us to address this! @afromac@Pepperoni_Joe - sharing for visibility - will take the discussion into Discord
Please find the following slides*, prepared by Lanks. For the top level ideas;
But here’s the highlights for todays quick & efficient meeting.
@Tudou shared progress on last week onboarding call for the Greater China and challenges moving forward. Furthermore, this Thursday; Tudou will be having a discussion with Huobi on what possible partnership we can work on. “The china team is totally killing this~ kudos to them!!!”
@bradwmorris, community onboarding is about to be roll out, and discussion on how APAC should move forward. Especially with cross function working groups etc.
@Kiba, shoutout to him and the DATA team (based in Korea). Currently in DG2, CTA to vote on the product here. If you want a proper context on the DATA Index, here.
Moving forward, I’ll be speaking to those in APAC plus few from the Leadership team to strategise and formulate a proper framework on how we should move forward. But preliminary it can be divided into 3 main vertices;
Community & Capacity Building
From this 3, it will then focus to 3 specific geographical regions;
South East Asia (Singapore)
Also as the APAC Community Manager, together with @bradwmorris, please do reach out to us should you have any suggestion and feedback. Or if I may have missed you. Apologies. But looking forward to bring the APAC region forward and becoming the eastern lighthouse for The Index Cooperative.
